If you find yourself in Joseph, or the Wallowa Mts. area, this trip is a must do. The ride up and down the mountain it worth it in and of itself. Once up on top, there are a number of short trails around the summit,...More

The ride is a thrill and the views at the top are awesome! It seems that morning is the time to go if you want a quieter time to take in the views. By lunchtime it can be quite busy. Look for the unmarked spring...More

This was a fun excursion up a 8000ft mountain. The views were amazing and the trails on top just about the right length. We headed up early and had breakfast at the top which was fun. This was a bit spendy but something I would...More

Our trip up the tram was absolutely fantastic. The trails and view are great. We also went paragliding off Mt Howard with Wallowa Paragliding it is a must do if you are in the area.

It was not cheap (cost us $60 for two adult tickets), but the hiking trails at the top of the mountain afforded beautiful views and the tram ride up was fun. We thought it was worth the cost.

This is definitely a must do during your stay! The view is breathtaking and the grill at the top of the mountain has wonderful food! The paths are clearly marked and are easy enough to navigate

You must take a tram ride. The steepest vertical incline in the continental USA is really a kick! and the view from the top--priceless!

We walked on all of the trails at the top of the tram. My only comment is that there needs to be signs identifying the trails. We only saw one sign.

Having gone on a 14-mile hike the preceding day we were happy to be able to ride to such high elevations for great views without the exertion. The trails circumnavigating the summit area are nice and offer views in different directions. Small downside was waiting...More
